The Caletas-Ario National Wildlife Refuge is in jeopardy due to environmental degradation, illegal fishing, fires and turtle egg poaching.

Our place-based semester programs, summer programs and short courses create authentic, hands-on, learning experiences for students of all ages.
Students and researchers join efforts with local stakeholders in order to conduct action research projects focused on the creation of a more sustainable future.
Homestays, service learning, stakeholder meetings and working together towards common goals help students and stakeholders make life changing connections.
